I am a highly experienced teacher of instrumental lessons, school music lessons and group workshops. I play and teach guitar and piano but primarily work as a bassist, both bass guitar and upright bass, in a number of fields, particularly roots music (especially Blues and Country) and Jazz. I also teach classical guitar and classical double bass. Having spent a lot of time working as a sound engineer (both live and recorded) and producer I am also very happy to teach you about these subjects.
I feel that it is essential to not only be able to play an instrument, but also to be able to understand the choices that are made while playing, whether as an improviser, composer, songwriter or playing from notation, so I make sure all of my students gain an understanding of improvisation and music theory, as well as how to learn most effectively and efficiently If you are a motivated student you will likely see an exceptional rate of progress with my methods, which have been tested on hundreds of students over the last twenty years.
